on belt and recieve a word doc of your belt requirements
To prepare the students for testing for their
next belt we have a 3 tape system. Each different colored tape
represents different requirements that the student will learn
The Red tape represents a students breaking technique
for the next belt. Each Belt level requires a different breaking
The White tape represents the one step sparring
techniques that are required for the next belt. The one step sparring
techniques are movements that the student may use to defend themselves
against another person.
The Blue tape represents the form that a student
will learn for their next belt. Each form consists of a series
of movements in different stances. The movements may contain different
blocks, punches, or even a kicking technique which will be combined
into a form.
Once a student has all three tapes and the instructor
has put an X on the tape, they will then be ready to test for
their next belt.
Every 6 to 7 weeks students who have been given
all 3 tapes and a X on their belt will be able to test for their
next belt. Testing nights are usually on Thursday evenings. Students
are to be here one half hour before the actual testing time which
is usually 6:30 pm , and all students are required to be in full
uniform, no T-Shirts are allowed at testing. Grandmaster Rho will
be here on testing times to see each of the students showing what
they have learned during the past several weeks. During testing
, each student will demonstrate different hand techniques, kicking
techniques, they will also do their form that they have learned.
They will also do their one step sparrings. At the end of their
testing they will break a board using the last breaking technique
they have learned. After testing all students who passed will
receive their new belt and promotion certificate usually by the
beginning of the next week.
